The appearance of coziness is greatly enhanced by using a wide range of textures in the decor. There must be at least three different textures: silky, organic, and plush. For example, cashmere comforters pair well with silk pillowcases, satin pillows, or velvet upholstery.

2. A Planned Approach To How Your Bed Will Look

Olga Polizzi, the renowned interior designer for Rocco Forte Hotels, suggests using four pillows on each bed, including feather cushions and hypoallergenic options. The blanket should be laid out to completely envelop the bed, and the top portion should be pulled up slightly to conceal any gaps. Pillows used for decoration should be placed at an angle at the center.

3. Add Lots Of Mirrors

Large mirrors create the illusion of ample open space. This is why jewelry shops are filled with mirrors to make up for the small area. In addition, contemporary hotels strategically use mirrors for aesthetic purposes.

4. Add Gorgeous Lights

You might have noticed that some hotels only have traditional chandeliers and no artwork on the walls. They are functional as illumination but are aesthetically pleasing as well. So the more you invest in beautiful lighting, the better your room looks.

5. Use White Sheets

Luxuriously thick white sheets will transform your bedroom into a faux hotel. Satin or percale is the norm for hotel bedding. However, the pressing of the sheets and the softness are more critical than the choice of cloth.

6. Breakfast In Bed

An inexpensive breakfast tray might let you fake being a hotel guest in your own home. If you’re not rushing first thing in the morning, savor your meal. Making pancakes and presenting them on this platter is another gesture you may do for your sweetheart. The tray also serves as a handy culinary tool.

7. Add A Fluffy Mat

Try using a plush mat to help ease into the day comfortably. Two mats can be purchased and placed on the floor on both sides. Most of your time will be spent standing barefoot on the mat. Thus, comfort is of the utmost importance.

8. Add Varieties Of Cushions

There should be many pillows on the bed at any decent hotel. Large square cushions and smaller European-style cushions are standard in the headrest area. They do more than just look nice; they provide coziness and practicality to any space. Some are used while sleeping, while others are used when lounging in bed.

9. Robes

One of the most recognizable signs of a hotel is the presence of a guest robe. Sometimes guests even wear them to breakfast. In addition, most hotels sell robes if you wish to take home a memento from your trip. Alternatively, you may find a robe with the same design at any department shop.

10. Drapes From Ceiling To Floor

Rooms at hotels typically have curtains that cover the whole window. If you have blackout curtains installed, it will work well. You may get a better night’s rest behind such drapes and get up when you’re ready rather than when the sun rises!

11. Use Aroma Sticks

A pleasant odor from a quality room freshener may do wonders for the mood. You may also condition the curtains and the bed linens with a fantastic scent. Candles are lovely in the bedroom, and scented sticks are excellent for the bathroom.

12. Keep Towels Rolled
